Hosted by a purple sofa. Have a seat and chat.

Today is Memorial Day in the U.S., so we will be taking the day off and will return tomorrow.

On Memorial Day, we remember and honor the women and men of the U.S. military services who have given their lives for their country. If there is someone specific you would like to acknowledge today, please feel welcome and encouraged to do that here.

I would like to remember my Uncle Edward, who served in the Pacific Theater during World War II, and was one of the 292,131 servicemembers who never came home.
